Zakk Wylde Will Play On Every Track of Ozzy’s New Album
Great news for anyone who bummed by the complete lack of Zakk Wylde on Ozzy Osbourne’s last album, Ordinary Man: Ozzy himself has allegedly confirmed that Wylde will appear on every song on his next offering.
The Prince of Darkness told the Diary of Madman podcast that Wylde “was home from tour this time unlike when I did ‘Ordinary Man.’”
This news will surely warm the cockles of every Ozzy’s fan heart… especially given that these days, every Ozzy albums seems like it could be his last.
Ozzy’s new album is once against being produced by Andrew Watts (Post Malone), who was also at the helm for Ordinary Man. There are reportedly fifteen songs already recorded. The album will include Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) on drums and Robert Trujillo (Metallica) on bass. In addition to Wylde, guitarists set to appear on the record include Ozzy’s former Black Sabbath bandmate, Tony Iommi, iconic guitarist Jeff Beck, and iconic guitarist/total dipshit Eric Clapton.
No word on a release date yet.
